Open Science Discussion Forum: Preregistration

Open Science Discussion Forum: Preregistration

27 September, 12:00pm CEST
Open Science webinar, hosted by Sciences Po

The inaugural Open Science Discussion Forum will endeavor to answer questions pertaining to Open Science best practices, by and for researchers. In this webinar, we will explore the topic of preregistration in the social sciences.

Researchers from CIVICA institutions and beyond are invited to join the conversation. The event belongs to the collaborative process between CIVICA universities to contribute to the animation of an Open Science community under the work plans on the Horizon 2020 funded CIVICA Research project. The objective is to bring together a network of people, support staff, and researchers involved in Open Science practices.


Lou Safra is Assistant Professor in Political Psychology for CEVIPOF at Sciences Po, and an associate researcher at the Institut d'Études Cognitives. She adopts an ecological and evolutionary approach to better understand inter-individual differences in these domains, across both space and time. To do so, Lou relies on behavioural data, social surveys, computational modelling and, more recently, the analysis of cultural artefacts like paintings and books.

Lou holds a PhD in Cognitive Science, awarded in 2017 by the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris.

This event is organised in the framework of CIVICA Research, a project of CIVICA - The European University of Social Sciences. CIVICA brings together eight leading European higher education institutions in the social sciences to mobilise and share knowledge as a public good and to facilitate civic responsibility in Europe and beyond. CIVICA Research is funded by the EU's research and innovation programme Horizon 2020, under the chapter “Science with and for Society.”
